Great little place

This was our daily breakfast place and we really enjoyed the food and coffee. The croissants and baguettes were delicious.

If you are looking for authentic French bakery, bread and snack food, this is the place. Great bread (hard to find in Southeast Asia), all the products taste very fresh, the place is nice, big and quiet, the service is attentive. My favorite breakfast place in Vientiane.

Very very French patisserie in a pleasant pocket of downtown Vientiane! Excellent breakfast with mouthwatering croissants.

Nice location and ambiente, friendly staff. My 'Croissant Au Jambon' was ok, the lime juice good. There is NO WIFI.

Decided to have lunch here and escape the heat. A really nice bakery cafe with a charming fit out, good size menu and friendly staff. Recommend the panini and sandwiches. Will try and visit again while we are in Vientiane to try some of the amazing looking baked items.

Note: NO WIFI is offered. This was very close to the Riverside Hotel. Less than a 100 yards away. French influenced restaurants. Very good breakfasts and the croissants were delicious.

Had a tasty panini "Barcelone", which was very nice and welcome after all the Asian food. The restaurant has a Frech touch. I also got some croissants the next day, not as perfect like in Europe, but close.

Came here on the back of Lonely Planet. It's hardly THE BEST bakery? The croissant and baguette is nothing different to what you'd get in a supermarket and hardly wow bakery standard. Maybe if you're missing bread then it's wow but not to justify the prices charged for them. Coffee was again nothing special. We were more wowed by the... More

Not nearly as good as the Luang Prabang location. We ate croissants, eggs and lox with coffee and juice. Just an ok experience and won't repeat. Also observed multiple beggars walking by on this block so come prepared to donate or sAy no!

After a long train ride and border crossing from Thailand all we wanted is good coffee and breakfast. We found this place based on reviews and we're not disappointed. Croissants are amazing. Baguettes are exceptional. Coffee - can't be better. We enjoyed every bite. Would come back in a heart beat. Just found out there is a location in Luang... More
